The Keltepe wind farm is located in Turkey and consists of 23 wind turbines. The project saves around 48,000 tons of CO2 each year and helps Turkey to increase its share of renewable energies and to reduce its carbon footprint.


Climate protection:


Turkey, same as many other developing countries, faces the challenge of a rapidly growing demand for energy on the one hand, and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the other hand. So far, the energy production in Turkey still is dominated by non-renewable sources.


The Keltepe wind farm produces clean electricity for more than 40,000 Turkish households, thereby mitigating on average around 48,000 tons of CO2 each year.


This project, therefore, makes an important contribution to reducing the country's carbon footprint and to protecting the global climate - because for the climate, it does not matter where CO2 is mitigated, it is only important that overall are CO2 emissions reduced. 


Social and ecological benefit:


Apart from the direct reduction of CO2 emissions, the construction of the wind farm also offers added value for the local population from a social and economic point of view.


The construction of the wind farm was conducted mainly by local contractors and great emphasis was placed on sourcing the required building materials locally.


Beyond the construction phase, the operation of the plant continues to provide qualified long-term employment opportunities for local people.
